had a fabulous time East with trips' dad - he's the friend that I go the farthest back with in the fam...we started working together in 2001. My, how life had changed for both of us. I'm divorced and remarried, he's married with a toddler and three babies. Who would have GUESSED how life would turn out for either of us?? It's a REAL friendship that thrives despite big life changes like that. Not many do, and that's ok, just commenting.
speaking of that, a friend who I knew from work from 2000 (12 years?!) and I are getting together next week, and just as much has changed for us. She worked for me, had a teething toddler who threw up because of teething and she had to pick her up, I ended up working for her, and now she has three kids, the oldest now 13...omg. And, she doesn't work where we worked together, anymore.
life is strange and unpredictable despite all our careful planning.
I've got a roast in the oven due to come out a perfect 30 minutes before dh comes home with carrots and turnips from the garden tucked in around it. Baked potatoes due to go in at 6:30.
got the fire going; it was 62 in here when I got home at 3:30, and it was only 63 an hour after I put the roast in the oven so there was little hope of it getting to 67 before bedtime without more help. You can guess where Gracie is, lol.
i can smell the meat...1 1/4 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup white table wine, 1/4 cup balsamic, a large turnip and a few carrots. Yum!
